September Update

I just wanted to let everyone know that responses to your emails, applications, or phone calls will be delayed. I will be out of town for a little while and will try to catch up as quickly as I can when I get back. Thank you for your patience.

Also, for those of you who participate in the United Way Campaign at your workplace, we are eligible to receive those funds. If you would like to help our “kids” in that way, please use Homeward Bound CSP, Inc. for the name of the organization. United Way will contact me for the info they need.

We all thank you for your continued support in so many ways.

September Updates!

Hello all you Pei lovers. We are sorry for the lack of communication for the last few months. In answer to those of you who asked, yes, we are still in business. Unfortunately, it’s a sign of these tough economic times that there are more Pei than ever who need our help. We are over our legal limit, and we are still two people trying to keep up with all we need to do for those in our care. At this time we cannot take in any new dogs until some are placed. This economy offers us a double edged sword-more and more people are unable to keep their dogs, and less and less people are in a position to adopt.

We do have some beautiful Pei available for those of you who might be considering adopting. If so, please get in touch.

We hope you all had a great summer, and we will try to do better in letting you know what is happening at the rescue. Thank you for your concern for us and our “kids”. Although sometimes having so many dogs here at our home seems overwhelming, we are grateful to be able to provide them the care they need until they find their “forever” homes. It is with your continued support in so many ways that we are able to do that.

Upcoming Events

Event News:

The May 3rd "Animals on Broadway" event in Walnut Creek was a huge success! Despite the rain, Holly and Hunter, both rescues, were on-site to welcome the crowd. The turnout was great, and we raised almost $500 in donations and merchandise sales. We were thrilled to talk to so many families interested in adopting. A special thanks to Deanna Liskey, Pam Rogers, and Tami Mitchell for all their help with the event.

Our next event will be at H.A.L.O.'s 11th Annual "Ramble 'Round the Reservoir" at Contra Loma Regional Park in Antioch, CA on Sunday, June 21st, from 10AM - 2PM. The reservior dog walk will be followed by pet photos, dog contests, and a silent auction. You and your best friend can even enjoy a small agility course. Admission to the Ramble is free, and lunch will be served with a small donation. Stop by the California Shar-Pei Rescue booth to learn more about our wonderful kids available for adoption.

Animals on Broadway

Upcoming Event:

It’s time to start thinking about Broadway. No, not the theatre, but Animals on Broadway, a spectacular annual event at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek where people and pets join together and spend the day celebrating the joy of being best friends. And this year, California Shar Pei Rescue will be there.

Whether you're interested in adopting, have questions about the breed, or want to help our fundraising with the purchase of designer Shar Pei clothing and accessories - this is the event for you!

There's fun for the entire family! After visiting the California Shar Pei Rescue booth, you can fill your day browsing numerous other booths, with gifts, pet clothing and costumes, people and pet jewelry, artwork, gourmet pet treats, and professional pet photography, to name a few. There will be dog obedience and training classes, Cutest Beg and Silly Pet Tricks contests, live music, face painting, and even a dog wash.

Sunday, May 3, 2009 11 AM - 4 PM Broadway Plaza Shopping Center, Walnut Creek (So. Main Street & Mt. Diablo Blvd.)

Questions? Call Alexa Langona at (925) 997-0324. Hope to see you there!

More On Willard

Kathy Allred, Willard’s new “mom”, sends her heartfelt thanks to all who donated to help cover Willard’s multiple surgeries:

"Hi Anna,

One more thing. I know you have already thanked all the donors for Willard. However, I would like to thank them also. Willard is just so sweet and he certainly deserves to be loved as much as he is. If it weren't for all his vet bills being paid by all the donations he received and you so generously volunteering to pay for his surgeries, I'm sure he would have had to wait much longer for a forever home. I would not have known the joy of being Willard's new BFF!

I appreciate everyone who helped Willard more than words can ever express and I especially appreciate all you do for these kids. I have had the opportunity to love 3 of your kids and it wouldn't have been possible but for you."

Thank You!

Thanks to all of you who helped Wilbur out with your donations. All his needs have all been met including finding a great new forever home. Kathy Allred, who fostered Wilbur has adopted him. He will be living with her Pei, Mr. Beasley and Chelsea who were also adopted from us. It is not known yet how much vision he will regain, but that doesn’t matter to Kathy and her “kids”-they love him unconditionally. He’s a lucky dog to have so many generous sponsors, and from what Kathy says he would be happy to thank each of you personally with a big sloppy kiss!

And now for news of an upcoming event:

"Calling all adoptive Shar-Pei families! It’s spring again and that calls for the Chinese Shar-Pei Club of Northern California’s annual Breed Specialty shows. During these two shows, the club will again be having a Parade of Rescue. This parade is open to all Shar-Pei who have been lucky enough to be adopted into “forever” homes. There is no cost to participants. This is just a fun thing to do with your Pei and a chance to spotlight these great dogs and give them a rousing round of support and accolades.

The shows will be held on May 15, 2009, at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo, Calif. There will be a morning show and an afternoon show. Last year, the morning show started at 10am and the afternoon show started at 2pm. But the times will not be locked in until after the entry closing date: April 29, 2009, after which we know how many entries we have.

If you would like to participate in either or both parades, please contact Julie Gunn at JBGunn@pacbell.net.

The Chinese Shar-Pei Club of Northern California would also like to offer a free one-year membership to all those who have rescued Shar-Pei. It does not matter if you adopted through CSPR, your local shelter, some other organization, or right off the street. If you are interested, complete the application found at http://webpages.charter.net/cspcnc/id67.htm. For more information about the club, check out the rest of the website or contact club president Deanna Liskey at cspcnc@yahoo.com.

I hope to see you at the show/s! Deanna"
